Earlier this week, I talked about Lead Blogging and I proclaimed that “Lead Blogging is the Answer.” In that post, I introduced you to Aaron Abber over at the make money blogging site FullTiltBlogging, and promised a reprint of one of his posts on Lead Blogging. In this post, Aaron show you a screen shot of his 60,000 subscriber list over at Aweber.
Lead Blogging: Turning Opportunity into Leads
Luck and leadblogging favor the prepared.
Last week I noticed a new blog post over at Aweber.com. Nothing earth shattering, but it dealt with a topic I am intimately acquainted with—getting people to subscribe to email lists then confirm their subscription. In fact, before I sold my online business last year I had captured almost 60,000 double opt-in subscribers.
So I went over and left a comment about how I get over 15% of first time visitors to subscribe and over 90% of those people to confirm their subscription.
I figured making that comment would generate some visitors and subscribers.
But then I had a brainstorm—why not put the actual codes into an eBook and offer it for download? I figured I could capture more subscribers.
So that’s what I did. I created this “subscriber trap” to capture email address from my visitors.
All in all it took about two hours to set up and has resulted in 183 email submissions (so far) on 312 visits—for a whopping 58.7% conversion rate from visitor to subscriber.
That’s pretty cool.
In next week’s leadblogging post I will tell you about how I got a 95.2% confirmation rate from those visitors, and how I will turn those into $4,209.00 in cash. That means it it paid me about $2,104.50 an hour. Stay tuned.
